Maydsen checks blood sugar on the palm
Hi, my name is Maydsen and I’m gonna show you how
to use the Genteel lancing device. This is the kit and I’m gonna show you what it does. So there’s this, that you can put stuff in. It comes with a card in it and you can put your lancing stuff in there. And then, there’s a Velcro for it and then there’s the strap for your– — Test strips
— Test strips, and there are other colors of tips that you can put on here lid on your lancing device, and I like the yellow one, cause I can do the palm of my hand, my arm or my forearm. And now I’m gonna show you how to use it. So, you have your test strip and your meter. So, what you need is the tip of your thing that you’re gonna use, the color that you’re gonna use and make sure you have a needle in your lancing device. And then, if you don’t
know how to put the lid on you just put it like– twist it like this and then twist it till where you see the black tab, and then where there’s that L backwards. You just slide it over. And then you can do your
forearm with the yellow, or you can do the palm
of your hand right here. And I like doing the palm of my hand the best. And make sure you have it
sealed on all the way. And you have to press this black button, make sure your thumb or your pointer finger is on there covering– covering it. And you just put it on there, and press it, and then– — Did it hurt? — Nope.
— Does it ever hurt? — No. It never hurts at all. — Do you love it?
— Yes. — Would you ever use another
lancing device again? — No.
— No, probably not. Is that good, huh?
— And then if you just press down you’ll get more blood if you need a lot of blood for your meter. And then you test your blood sugar. Bye!
